This is designed for those who are interested in developing a sense of phrasing by making and exploring movement material. Full attention is paid to the detail, nuance, and finesse of any phrase material that is made. Performance of the material will directly affect the sense of phrasing and technical understanding, and in reverse, knowledge of technique and phrasing will help develop performance skill. Students are expected to create and develop new phrase material of their own, teach this work to others, and rehearse outside of class. Phrases may be combined into larger dance scores that are performed in dance workshops or studio showings.
Corequisite: Dance Workshop (Th 7:00pm – 8:30pm); Dance or Drama lab assignment.
